lyrics

i've got something to tell you
i miss you very much
you were everything that i held to
but you still slipped out of my touch

i guess that's just how it happens
but i miss your sunny smile
i found so many distractions
and they pushed me away with a sordid cynical sneer

but i wish you were here

silly songs on getting out of bed
popular invertebrates that dance around my head
nothing in that world of mine was making any sense

but it was okay
until it went away
we were okay
whoa oh

i wanna get away from here
cause these nights are getting long
and you can only wake up so many times

before level heads and heavy hearts
hang hopelessly on fresher starts
then leaden pressure gets to me again

you wanna see me flying free
but i can't get off the ground
i can barely keep myself upright sometimes

i gotta get away from here,
find a way to hear when they're around
those level headed, heavy hearted
hopeless guides that fight the bright new life

you know they're trying to tell me
that i never lost my way
but maybe you're here in the melody
cause i know you've got something to say

oh i could use your hope
in a funny time like this
if i could find the notes
to bring you back with a wide-eyed ear-to-ear

i wouldn't have to miss you were here

you didn't know what it was all about
but maybe you were closer to figuring everything out
and you did your best when everything went south,

but oh no
you were too slow
oh no
whoa oh

i wanna get away from here
cause these nights are getting long
and you can only wake up so many times

before level heads and heavy hearts
hang hopelessly on fresher starts
then leaden pressure gets to me again

you wanna see me flying free
but i can't get off the ground
i can barely keep myself upright sometimes

i gotta get away from here,
find a way to hear when they're around
those level headed, heavy hearted hopeless guides in helpless nights
who hate the light and fight the bright new life
